Anyway Gang entertains Olds crowd from train stage pulled up to 50th Street railway crossing Dec. 8

OLDS –The 2023 CPKC Holiday Train made a stop in Olds Friday afternoon much to the enjoyment of a crowd gathered at the 50th Street railway crossing.

The Holiday Train is making a North American tour raising money, food and awareness for the important work that food banks do in the communities it stops.

Those attending the Dec. 8 event were encouraged to bring food donations that, along with $4,000 raised through the Holiday Train, goes to Mountain View Food Bank.

Mountain View Food Bank president Tayva Graham is thankful for the awareness and support the Holiday Train brings. 

“We’ve had a huge increase of people using the food bank in 2023,” she said in a news release issued by the Town of Olds. 

“We are feeding about 500 people a week this year and we expect that number to rise to around 700 in the weeks leading up to Christmas.”  

The Anyway Gang gave a free concert on a brightly decorated stage folded out from the train.
